One Indian Girl

Name of the Book- One Indian Girl

Author- Chetan Bhagat’

Genre- Fiction

Publication Date- 1 October 2016


This book follows our main character Radhika, who is twenty-seven years old and is going to get married in a week’s time. But the thing is; she doesn’t want to get married. She is a person who has a very high position at her job; a very high salary which is uncomparable to all of her suitors and expects to be independent on her own. But will she be able to do so without the judgements of everybody around her?


I felt that the book had this “feminism” vibe going on. But I really liked the starting portions- the introduction of Radhika and her being a contrast to her sister Aditi, joining into Goldman Sachs without any knowledge about office ethics and so forth. But the parts where she felt that she had trouble with having a relationship, I find that hard to believe.

I feel that most people shouldn’t be rejected just because you feel that you don’t like their opinion. And secondly, I hardly think that such opinions exist. Therefore the idea of rejection due to such reasons that were mentioned seemed a bit too exaggerating in my mindset.

I would give this book 3 stars out of 5 and I would recommend this book to people who support “modern feminism.”
